Most of us, when we hear the word 'politician', immediately feel a little unpleasant and some of us even get a little nauseous. Attorney Dekel-David Ozer, founder of the Dor Ha'am movement and running for the Labor Party's list for the 19, is all you would not expect from a politician.
Subversive messages, philosophical discussions about the nature of things and striving for facts, justice and truth, are not what we are used to seeing from Israeli politicians. Bill Hicks, Chris Rock, George Carlin, cartoon videos and music from Israeli and international artists are just some of the materials on Dekel-Ozer's Facebook page, the most colorful candidate for the Labor Party's Knesset list in the upcoming elections.
Adv. Dekel-David Ozer, A former adviser to Shelly Yachimovich, is a politician of a different kind - speaks at eye level, speaks the truth, pursues justice, and above all, represents the younger generation - the Internet generation and the information revolution. While the politicians on the right and the left are throwing slogans at a just economy that is completely correlated with reality, Ozer relates in his articles (he has written dozens of articles on a variety of economic, legal, human freedom, education, etc.) Like them in politics. Some of his articles can be found On the website of the "Dor ha - Emet".
Ozer started the campaign for the primaries more than a year ago. Since then, he has succeeded in attracting more than 1,500 people to join the Dor Ha'Amet movement, which calls for stopping the incrimination of cannabis consumers and for serving the large parties and creating a strong lobby within the parties, which will influence the placement of candidates in the final lists of the Knesset parties.
Dekel assists in the legalization march:
Two weeks ago, he published the document confirming his candidacy for a place on the Labor list for the Knesset and began a political campaign that has not yet been seen in Israel. One of the campaign's moves is to send official letters on the subject of legalization of cannabis. The Assistant sends ministers letters detailing each specific minister according to the nature of his role in the government, and describes how the minister is acting in his role by ignoring this important issue.
In a letter to Environment Minister Gilad ErdanEntitled "Breach of your duty as a minister to permit industrial growth", explains how ignoring the issue and leaving industrial cannabis (definition) as a dangerous drug - although it contains no psychoactive ingredient - is a breach of public trust and a first-class professional failure.
Similar letters He also sent an assistant to Agriculture Minister Orit Noked, Minister of Science and Technology Daniel Hershkowitz, Welfare Minister Moshe Kahlon, Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman and Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov. Additional letters will be sent over the next few weeks to each of the ministers.
A review of these letters constitutes a real lesson on the enormous absurdity of the ban on cannabis that originated in the US. Until that time the plant was used in all cultures and throughout human history As a cure for various physical and mental illnesses and manifestations Such as cancer, glaucoma, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, asthma, anxiety, depression, For industrial purposes Such as fabrics, fuel, paper, plastic and even concrete and purposes Creation andpleasure Similar to alcohol, coffee and cigarettes (but not as harmful).
Facebook page of assistant It is perhaps the most interesting page of the Knesset candidates: "The Additional Theme Corner," "A Song at Lunch," "The Daily Memoir," "Letter to the Minister" are just some of the issues on the page.
We turned to Dekel to ask how we can make him finally a real representative of legalization in the Knesset and how he can be helped to be elected to a high place on the Labor list for the elections.
"I am excited about the primaries and hope that anyone who joined the Labor Party's true generation will come on the day of the primaries and support my candidacy for the party's Knesset list," he said. "There are three things you can do to help me during the course: 1. If they call you, say that you are with a palm tree and support someone who will support the palm tree. 2. You will arrive at the regional meetings that are being held prior to the primaries and ask the various candidates about their position on legalization. 3. It is important to be united and take into account the public weight of the candidates, which may sometimes raise the question of whether that MK is willing to announce that he will support legalization or not. If we all unite and ensure a unified vote, it is very likely that the legalization movement will be the first representative in the Israeli Knesset. "
The Cannabis Magazine team wishes Dikkel great success in the primaries. We'll be there to vote.
